Its changed, the new offical height is 1362 ft. Meaning the 5th tallest building in the world if it was finished today(if the petronas was counted as one).
Chicago will get 4 of the 5 tallest building in the western hemisphere.

Trump's the bloke with the dodgy combover which he has tried to turn into a new trend for the past few decades...

The tower is good but I just hate Trump dominating everything. He even set up his own university! He built his own little town in New York which me and made friend nicknamed Trumpton. He needs a break otherwise this planet is going to be come Property of Trump.

I always have a look at this one when I'm browsing the World Forums. It's great how fast the cladding is chasing the steelwork up the core :)
